iHire Releases Latest Iteration of iMatch Job Matching Algorithm

Frederick, MD (February 2015) – iHire recently launched its most advanced version of iMatch, a proprietary job classification system that provides job seekers a single place to quickly and easily find relevant, quality employment leads. iMatch compiles jobs from thousands of sources across the internet and uses a variety of parameters to both confirm the legitimacy of an open position as well as match the right candidate with the right opportunity.

iMatch’s sophisticated logic takes job ads from numerous online sources, verifies the location, normalizes the job title, and accurately assigns them to the most relevant iHire niche communities. iMatch also eliminates scam jobs and maintains blacklists to ensure illegitimate postings do not reach iHire users. Once a posting meets iMatch’s quality standards, it is shared with job seekers on their homepages as well as via email alerts based on multiple criteria including profile/resume data, indicated preferences, and user behavior/site activity.

“iHire’s ability to deliver relevant job matches has progressed significantly over the past year into a state-of-the-art matching technology. We attribute this rapid advancement to our move from traditional search methods to an open-source, document-based repository (think big data infrastructure) that supports advanced search techniques including a multidimensional analysis of users’ preferences,” said Todd Lizambri, iHire’s Vice President of Technology. “We are very excited to see that these changes are producing highly accurate job matches that reduce the time our customers spend searching for the perfect opportunity.”

By leveraging crowdsourced data within a variety of industries, iMatch allows the iHire team to make intelligent inferences about job seeker preferences and activity and almost immediately deliver relevant leads to any user.

“It’s all about understanding our customer and creating tools and resources to make their job search as easy as possible. iMatch enables us to continually learn and make intelligent choices, but we will never be done,” said Carol Wolcott, a Senior Research Developer at iHire. “We will constantly be growing iMatch to be the best, most accurate product it can be.”
